In retrospect, largely, my life has been tilting at windmills. And that may not have been such a bad thing. Being in a battle keeps one focused on what is immediately in front of you and gives you great incentives to wake up tomorrow morning. So while others may think whatever you are engaged in is simply, what I have done, tilting at windmills, nonetheless it can be very helpful and important in your own life. The hell with them in other words. Years ago one of my friends said that I never stopped to smell the roses, I was always working, and that I was missing out on life. My answer to him was that I just had different roses to smell.

    Smelling the roses doesn’t take all that long to do, and for many of us gets boring quickly.
